wife gail yucky wet and ageing. alright certainly a lot of outrage over this artsy correspondence there for things for your reporting can the world i have been focused on the fount political change is unfolding in ukraine's capital of the ads in recent months. but it seems now the attention is shifting to the crimean peninsula where dozens of gunmen raise the russian flag over parliament today the conflict is now raising concerns over possible separatists from delhi and that's dividing the region rtc work is not as the story the last of the law ukrainian nationalists who lives are being shouted alongside one of the state share the same way and definitely not the same political views. eight. i

wheeled he now teaches children that note i'll recruit who does not will be named lucy the caribbean as a part of aggression the majority of people with a fear of support for russia's leader in news saw the crimean belong to the russian soviet republic until nineteen fifty four with the then soviet leadership decided to transfer to the administration also beat ukraine and when the ussr collapsed in nineteen eighty one the crimea was left in support of independent ukraine. was the last few centuries mainly ethnic russians have been waiting on these lands alongside minorities including the muslim twenty and top cars the granny always used to be rationed was passed over to the brain idle. it's time for justice to prevail in the car in front of the local administration building here in sync with the he did it for approval rating had to go for progress
8:09pm
in with the words like her ukrainian flags here and that sentence. boiling point when you submit a switch starting with the ukrainian nationalists they were never able to agree on them. one room crime unit on fingleton was on the idea is to fall for it to the point however to listen to fall more and more tickets but the majority you expect you'll have plenty of warnings to exercise the political will and not allow him to comfort the new open to break down. you go to school for tea. reporting from the cranium. and headlines across the us and europe are speculating that rice is on the brink of getting involved in finance some argue directly linking russia's military drills but the tense situation on the peninsula. russian military officials have denied there is any connection saying the maneuvers are being held hundreds of miles away anderson nineteen nineties with the cap now brings us more on how the west is
8:10pm
responding to the situation nato defence ministers expressing a lot of concern over ukraine as well as their perception of the kremlin's response the nato secretary general wonders of rasmussen called on russia not to do with anything that would quote as cleats tension or create the mis understanding he told the guy a meeting of the nato ukraine commission die in brussels. the latest developments in the crimea both dangerous and irresponsible also raised the alarm. the new german defense minister now she waited at her very first nato summit in brussels. take a quick lesson in this situation in the ukraine particularly encouraging me and fills us with great concern because of the utmost importance that we prevent the breakup of the ukraine and that special forces in the country are strengthened so of concern about da whether ukraine remains in one piece are not the russian foreign ministry meanwhile issuing a statement in response to all this saying that the nato defense ministers were sending equal
8:11pm
to the wrong signal in their statements urging all sides to refrain from making what moscow referred to as provocative statements of islam not just coming from the nato ministers but reflected in the western press as well the news has certainly made front page headlines when a lot of speculation that moscow's decision to hold military drills is linked somehow to be addressed. that notion which the russian defense minister sergei should build disputed that saying that the emergency military drills were routine of largely on believe it to the developments in the ukraine and did i want to say that russia is of course closely monitoring the developments there and the restless around russia's black sea fleet which remember is based in the crimea. that was rt correspondence account not and as a member of the cuban five spy ring was released today from the us prison after spending more than fifteen years behind bars fifty year old fernando gonzalez known to us authorities by his alias
8:12pm
within combat completed his sentence today in safford arizona. according to the u s attorney's office in silence has been turned over to immigration officials for deportation to cuba. the five men who make up the cuban five were convicted in two thousand won in miami for spying. the first to be confined to the release was rene gonzalez. he finished his prison sentence in two thousand eleven. it's been more than a year on probation in the us until a judge allowed him to return to cuba earlier i spoke with our teasing episode on the mend from our miami bureau. first lesson to explain why the cuban five which horse with back in two thousand won well actually that trial begun in november of two thousand that it was a very real and complex processes you can imagine that went on to seven months it'll happen here in miami and from the very beginning of the legal teams defending the cuban five fold for change of venue because as we all know the south florida is a stronghold for the cuban
8:13pm
that didn't happen and the jury found them guilty of all twenty six counts including conspiracy to commit espionage conspiracy to commit murder and acted as agents of a foreign government here in the united states. and besides the trial were lost in several months the benedict well surprise was just announced in a few minutes then in december two thousand won all five members of the group received different sentences but not on rene gonzalez the two that already the alps called nineteen and fifteen years and don't you get it all the more i like the noble life in prison. this received two life sentences to be served consecutively the cuban government's response then over the years it has gone on for. he now is so long i was like the swans maintenance incarceration but since been going on since nineteen ninety eight and they basically the cuban government has a mole always had a different position at a very different point of view and will they pull away said
8:14pm
is that the other team was an anti unit whose mission was to avoid any violent action coming from miami based groups against the castro regime so they have the issue is is very different but the group was never talked in the us military but miami the cuban groups. in addition we have recently heard that from the cuban officials that washington simply next the wheel and displaced wants them to roll and that directly accuse the us officials the pride agenda next to inflate the story and create a negative view that the cuban five in the right here in the us a very strong position from the biomass and also a very different one from the one here from washington not only the cuban government but also in the cuban people both the bride and the us in miami where you are. i mean long lobbied for their relief at were now seen this act and had to be release fernando gonzalez. i'm making you think it's because of the safford sad that she's finally being released
8:15pm
the festival you're absolutely right it's not only the cuban officials that the cuban people around the world of albion for their release and what to bolster the amnesty international criticized in the us but necessary punitive actions toward some of the cuban five no broad term visas to their relatives so that they can come and visit them here in the us the united nations commission of human rights stated also that of the trial did not take place in the climate of all chipped in to cnn cost of a tape that is required in order to confirm that the standards of a fair trial such as the middle of pressure but honestly it's britney and fernando gonzalez have completed their sentences and they just all the standard production for the comeback said. i don't think in these two places him at the end that was was was was not. activists will they insisted they can to keep on fighting for those three members of the group the state imprisoned we have seen some reductions than in two of those cases. so some efforts have definitely been
8:16pm
heard in washington. i love the sentiment and a reaction to all this but this could be a step toward better u s cuban relations go back to us that cuban relations that is a very very deep and complex problem that it's only you know that many crossed interest between these two countries but because there is such an option in strong cuban community live in a care in the us in specifically here in miami also south florida that many times. no one gets the sensation that these can just get in the way of any possible improvement but at the same. it is such that the problem and we do try to tend them find unit at turning points that would trigger a change dr brady think the nations will change due to a single issue it's more a matter of oil in a compromise. absolutely well ali and time for our team episode on and from our miami city of indio. and two former guantanamo bay detainee is an act of french judge to
8:17pm
subpoena the former prison commander. they accuse of overseeing their alleged torture. ms r's stasi and mom rhonda salami are french citizens who were both captured by us authorities in qana heart afghanistan. they were held by american authorities in gitmo from late two thousand one to two thousand four at which many were released back to france the report submitted to the giants of the high court in paris the former detainee is alleged that major general geoffrey miller carried out a quote on the rise and systematic plan of torture and ill treatment on persons deprived of their freedom without any charge and make out the basic lines of any detainee. miller became the commander of guantanamo and the two thousand to just after the bush administration approved enhanced interrogation techniques those techniques included placing the detainees in stress positions for a man exposing them to extremes
8:18pm
unocal. but the complaint notes that miller carried those tactics out and then after then secretary of defense donald rumsfeld withdrew permission to use the most controversial interrogation practices the united states has yet to issue a response on the case guantanamo remains open more than twelve years after it began holding suspects despite president obama's efforts to close at and the third of the police officers in a small california town of king city have been arrested. this is all for their involvement in a scheme to steal impounded cars belonging to pour family is rocking latino immigrants in fact one of the police officers was promised he could keep one vehicle for every ten to fifteen vehicles he steered towards a towing company. for more insight on this earlier i spoke with our t's room on the window i first asked him to tie the knot how this team really operated. brett mayo well residents of this small town
8:19pm
of king city having complained that police had been taken their cars for years but this investigation involving the monterey county district attorney's office in the fbi to start about six months ago now in the criminal complaint alleges that a sergeant in king city between the two doesn't end in two thousand thirteen had that towed and impounded more than two hundred vehicles and as you mentioned injured in the introduction of for every ten or fifteen that you would bring to the lot. he would get one in which it now the prop are the problem is that most of the car as i was in town they were being sent to just one total yards nearly ninety percent of all the impound the cars are going to this one till your problem is that these tow yard also happens to belong to the brother of the acting police chief banking city so that things did seem a little strain is there ultimately the district attorney. i did step and ultimately a rest in the six officers and civilian
8:20pm
obviously after all conflict of interest there would have been telling company. i meant on the twenty police officers are being charged with break now. sure the most serious charges are bribery and embezzlement all felony charges which carry up to forty years. with each cow very bizarre schemes had to try and cool outside really think they can get away with it add the prosecutor in the case and even said he's considering charging officers with hate crimes you know anything about that how this could be considered a hate crime. sure though that the lead prosecutor in this case the issue was considering hate crime charges against some of these officers upon was that a lot of these cars that were taken were taken from latino families that come from disadvantaged areas there in the city. i get into a proven racial animus in the quarter was very difficult than what some believe the da's office decided that today wasn't so much of a racial thing. more
8:21pm
of a thing where the police where to start in the most formidable more notable people in this community many of which had very few financial resources and many of whom just didn't speak english. i understand authorities act and said that while they were investigating the initial add the miso crimes. add the photo cause some on terror and evil activities he knew anything about now. gray wool when the offices which was arrested this week is being charged with possession and assault rifle and illegals the little storage of a wet day and a diet of gun laws here in california. another officer was charged with making criminal threats against a resident barry king city and the deserted train this week mentioned that the investigation is ongoing so we could see more of a rest to come in that in the coming days and weeks till after we receive that i was going to shift attention to one particular act police
8:22pm
officer or former police officer that was arrested at former police chief nate make an aldi me as i'm coming under scrutiny. this is not the first time that i am now he is sort of calm under pressure at once his history yet the former she's back in twenty ten he was on leave that he was accused of showing up to a crime scene drunk actually a murder scene in stepping in. in some blood and also putting down his coffee cup. there potentially contaminating the scene of those charges he was ultimately cleared him but he received a vote of no confidence from the police union say a police officer saying that they're that he had retaliated against them ultimately his troubled tenure ended last year when he retired but he's still getting paid by the city. i needed something thinking that he is not the only california to be making headlines this week that as an ego police department
8:23pm
chief. i also stand down amidst allegations of sexual misconduct by police officers and his forest. i want the latest on that case and we have about thirty seconds laughed. sure we'll officially will hand down his last day is tomorrow says twenty eleven at least nine ounces there have been accused of a range of crimes in misconduct from rain to sexual battery to dui but the most seriously ill he was an officer who it is facing several charges of sexual battery. ultimately he. she said that this was in the cause for his resignation over a new police chief has been named as a new police did not return my phone calls for comment. however she says she's been there it's the first female chief in the city but overseas been there for decades. so it's still a lot of questions as to whether someone who's been in the system for so long to really be former police department that's seen quite a bit of misconduct in the last two years i miss the neck is becoming more and more frequent and scenes in a
8:24pm

the most popular voices within the tea party movement speaking here today including senators brand color and type cruise and michele bachmann and representative jim jordan i spoke earlier with mark live band hanson was the biggest motivating force behind the tea party today you have millions of individuals who love the country who do not want to fundamentally transform to believe in liberty and private property rights of the rule of law and so this is why with the tea party movement a conservative constitutional movement. and that's our heritage and are trying to protect preserve our heritage to the tea party still has a very active boys and watching ten pc in the tea party patriots are operating on three sets of values one a constitutionally limited government fiscal responsibility and free market economics that one member of this organization has taken individual initiative. it's in the pew and she is looking to oust a very influential voice by the end of this year twenty fourteen is going to be an absolutely fantastic year

8:30pm
